Concert ()

D'Aeschylus, dans une nouvelle version de Ted Hughes (1999)

Résumé: A man is faced with the choice of killing his daughter or losing the war. Driven by personal ambition, he brutally murders his child and, in doing so, unleashes a chain of vengeance that rips through his family and community. When he returns home victorious, his wife murders him, and their son, in turn, murders her. Social order collapses, tyranny triumphs and the `daughters of darkness' burst out of the bowels of the earth demanding that the son's crime be avenged. Finally, the son is put on trial and in the tense and highly charged atmosphere of the courtroom, the story reaches its climax. But can the court stop further bloodshed and break the cycle of vengeance?
